About Us

99 Cents Only Stores is a premier deep-discount retailer that primarily carries name-brand consumable and general merchandise.

We are an exciting shopping destination—often the first stop—for price-sensitive consumers, and a fun treasure-hunt shopping experience for other value conscious consumers.

Our stores are attractively merchandised, clean, full-service shopping destinations that offer customers significant value on a wide selection of quality products from everyday household items to fresh produce to an exciting assortment of seasonal and party merchandise including decorations, costumes and gifts. Merchandise encompasses name-brand closeouts and regularly available food and beverage products such as produce, deli, and other basic grocery items.

From the first store opening in 1982, 99 Cents Only Stores has expanded to more than 350 extreme value retail stores in California, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada.

99 cents store variety

With more than 350 stores in four states and two distribution centers in California and Texas, 99 Cents Only Stores became the leading extreme value retail chain in the Western United States.

2012 marked a turning point for the Company when it celebrated its 30th anniversary and decided to go private by partnering with Ares Management and the Canadian Pension Plan Investment Board.  This partnership has been instrumental in the company’s continued expansion, both in the number of new stores and new markets.
